Sony Open R4

Australia's Cameron Smith wins at Waialae Country Club

January 09-12
Waialae CC, Honolulu, Hawaii
$6,600,000
Round 1, Round 2, Round 3


Australia’s Cameron Smith won his first solo PGA Tour title, beating American Brendan Steele in a play-off at the Sony Open at Waialae Country Club in Hawaii.

The Australian was two shots behind with two holes to play at Waialae, but made an eight-foot birdie putt on the final hole to force the play-off.

Smith, who shared the team title with Jonas Blixt in the Zurich Classic three years ago, sealed the victory with a two-putt par from 10 feet in the first play-off round.


Steele, a three-time PGA Tour winner, had taken a three-shot lead into the final round.

But he missed a six-foot par putt on the 17th and then hit a wild hook from the fairway on the par-five 18th.


Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell finished joint fourth on nine under.
